    Remote play for PS3 is a joke

    Have you guys seen the list of games that's capable of remote play?

    I can't believe I never noticed how horrible it was, what was the point of this if you couldn't play most AAA games? It's mostly PSN games that you could download to your Vita/PSP in the first place. I setup remote play on my PC and I tried to play any of my games and none of them can work lol, in order to make it work I'd have to hack my PS3. That's just sad when hackers are able to provide more than Sony themselves. This is kind of a rant, but in all honesty what gives? The PS4 and Vita now fixed this issue so it's not that big of a deal for the future but I can't believe how lame this was for PS3 to PSP/PSVita/PC.

    Because PS4 has it in from the start, with PS3 they have to go to each publisher and get their permission, like with ingame soundtracks having a problem with some early EA titles or whatever it was. That's the problem with adding a feature halfway into the consoles life cycle. No excuse for Sony first party games though, all should be supported.

    Are you talking about Remote Desktop for Vita with that PC part? Seems to work somewhat but last I checked there's no audio and it's not full resolution (960X544) but hopefully it gets updated by the community as it's looking pretty promising:

    Yeah, that makes sense but you'd think all the planning ahead they'd have talked to some game developers to support it. And no I wasn't talking about that however I'm glad you mentioned it, I'm going to look into it seems interesting. I was talking about the PS3 to PC remote play that was only available on Vaio computers until someone found a way to work around it, now any PC can stream their PS3. That's why I'm so bummed, because I could go anywhere with my laptop and play my PS3 with a internet connection.

    PS3 + PSP remote play is why I was never really behind it. Wasn't until I tried Vita + PS4 remote play that I started to "get it".
    PS3 remote play aint worth the time or effort.

    Sony never made the PSP with remote play in mind, it was made a good few years before the PS3, whereas the Vita was made with remote play in mind and they knew what hardware was going to make it possible.
    you could say PS3 remote play was more like an experiment .

    Yeah this. The problem with PS3-PSP remote play lag was down to PSP having wireless B wifi which sucked (at the time was decent for a portable), and PS3 only having wireless G. PS4 and Vita are both wireless N. PS3 shouldn't have a problem remote playing to Vita but like I said they'd need to patch it in game by game rather than making it a sysem wide feature for all games. If publishers were as easy going as they were 20 years ago they wouldn't need permission.

    Remote play for the PS3 with the PSP has always been known as being awful, think that's probably why it never really took off! At least they got it right with the PS4, remote play is amazing!!

    PSP remote play was like to prototype, PSVita remote play was closer to the vision but it's PSVita & PS4 that hits the nail as the Vita was built with 4 in mind.

    Yeah.....and fact is that Sony really hasn't promoted remote play until Vita and PS4.

    Remote play just wasn't done properly by Sony. Hack the PS3, and use remote play, and it's 10 times better. It definitely has its limitations compared to the Vita + PS4, but it is definitely playable when "enabled". Sony could have done this... they were just focused elsewhere.

    It all comes down to the hardware, PS3 has very powerful but limited hardware.

    * No Secondary Encoder means software resolution would need to be scaled down heavily to be able to stream the video and audio content efficiently to a remote play device, with PS3 there's just too many variables in each software title and the way it runs on the PS3.. MOST GAMES were not even considered with the concept of remote play... that combined with limited VERY limited RAM was the biggest bottleneck in itself, the CPU has to further remove game processing power and push data to and fro through the network cards and move data between the disc and HDD, PS3 reminds me of the really old Apple Macs, they run great with one dedicated task, but you try multi-tasking and it's like trying to climb everest with a 300KG boulder strapped to your leg whilst trying not to spill your coffee... it's possible but it's just not efficient doing too much at once.

    I'm really disappointed in this too..
    They never really took the time and such either to properly see what it can do I think.
    And especially after Vita got released I was hoping to see more games pop up on the list with 'remote play function' but sadly enough nobody gave a $#@!. Really disappointed, got a PS3 and Vita and would love to play some games from PS3 on my Vita, but won't happen until Playstation Now, which I am not really too happy about as thusfar I feel like that's just going to be a money-eating service and a $#@!ty way of 'fixing' it to play PS3 on Vita.

    It'll be limited to digital games so there goes half the PS3 library anyway.
